London — A senior Russian legislator has suggested kidnapping a Nato defence minister in Ukraine and bringing them to Moscow for questioning about what “orders” the West has been giving to Kyiv.
Oleg Morozov, first elected to the Russian parliament in 1993 and a member of the dominant United Russia party, said the supply of Western arms to Ukraine poses a direct threat to Russia and might require Moscow to review its military aims.
“You know, perhaps it is a fantastical plot that I have brewing … that in the near future, a war minister of some Nato country will go by train to Kyiv to talk with [Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelensky,” Morozov told the 60 Minutes talk show on Rossiya-1 state TV late on Monday.
“But he would not get there. And would wake up somewhere in Moscow,” Morozov said.
“You mean we abduct them?” TV host Olga Skabeyeva, one of the most pro-Kremlin journalists on television, asked with a smile.
“Yes. And then we would sort out who gave which order for what, who is responsible for what exactly,” Morozov said. “It is not such a mythical picture. There are new rules in the world now. Let all those war ministers gathering in Kyiv think a little about what it would be like to wake up in Moscow.”
Neither Morozov nor Skabeyeva could be reached for comment.
A succession of Western politicians have visited Kyiv to show solidarity with Ukraine — including US defence secretary Lloyd Austin, who travelled there in April with secretary of state Antony Blinken.
